  • Generate Income

Ideally, all energy produced is used to meet your premises demand but as this is not always possible, any surplus power can be sold back to the grid.

  • Energy Cost Stability 

With the current energy crisis and unpredictable energy prices, solar panels allow you to effectively pre-buy your energy at a fixed price , helping with financial planning and allocation of funds.

  • Smart Investment 

Solar Panels are a reliable and safe investment and require minimum maintenance. They also provide returns over a long lifespan of up to 25 years.

  • Energy Storage 

With the national grid now struggling to generate sufficient electricity to meet the Irelands growing energy demands, and the recent introduction by the government of mandatory energy audits for large businesses through the energy auditing compliance scheme, plus possible future regulation of energy usage, an independent solar installation is an excellent backup power measure.

Producing your own energy will significantly reduce your carbon footprint and increase your company’s sustainability profile and reputation .
